2018 is the year of restoration of health

We have enjoyed the snow in 2018 but not so much the below zero wind chills. 2017 was a hard year medically for our family, but we are looking forward to the restoration of health for Scott and L in 2018. It indeed is heartbreaking to watch two people that mean the world to me struggle with their health. We have all been grateful for the Lord’s strength to get us through each day. Also, the power of positive thinking helps the days brighter. Last week, I told a friend that I don’t even know how people go through life without God. God gives us hope that these health concerns will be taken care of and we put our complete trust in him.

L will have a scope on February 7th to see if sweet potatoes will be her second safe food. To be honest, she should have had a scope before now, but she has been so sick since September. Steroids were not kind to her body, but thankfully we see the light at the end of the tunnel. I wish I could tell if she would pass sweet potatoes, but we just do not know. She continues to complain of chest pains, and that is a symptom of her EoE no longer in remission. We will not know if that is the truth until February 7th. Nightly prayers continue for a cure for L and so many others that are fighting this evil disease.

Scott is stable, but we would like him better so are seeking another opinion at Duke Heart Health. Hopefully, we will get answers so he can feel like “Scott” again and enjoy being active outdoors.

Our family laughs with each other, wipes away each others tears, and try to keep each other positive. Depression is a real thing, and my goal is not to let Scott and L get depressed.

I’m in my last semester of school and will graduate in May. It is going to be a hectic semester with college full-time, work full-time, and navigating through all the doctor appointments. My motto is, “God gives me strength, so I got this.”

M is driving now! How did this happen? She will practice driving with us over the next year and then will spread her wings to get her permanent license.

In the next posts, I hope to catch up on my pending product views and share a few of my favorite things with you. Please stay tuned and leave a comment to let me know you are still here and how is life treating you in 2018!

Lots of love and blessings!

DIY Disney Costumes

With all the medical issues going on in our family, our girls decided to put their heads together to come up with last-minute DIY Disney costumes! We heart Disney so when I came home last week from work to see my girls dressed up by using their own imagination with clothes in their closet……

the biggest smile stretched across my face. Meet my Disnerd and Animal Kingdom Safari Cast Member. Are they not the cutest? This shows everyone that practical items can be used for dress up. We had a fun night celebrating Halloween, but now we are excited for all things Christmas. Oh wait – yes, we will be thankful for God giving us heartbeats and breaths but I am choosing to thank Him every night before I go to bed.

Stay tuned for lots of holiday posts! 🙂

How did this happen?

Big Sis Highschool

Another big change has happened in our household. Big Sis is in Highschool. How did this happen? Homeschooling her for the last three years has been a blessing, but she is eager to go back to public school and enjoy her high school years. After discussions, my husband and I both thought this would be a great adventure for Big Sis!

She is wanting to work for Disney Animation after college, and I will be cheering her on every step of the way. This first semester she is taking a scientific and visual technical class which is a stepping stone to her future career.

I’m excited to share with you how life is with a high school student.

Our Reaction to the Total Solar Eclipse 2017 {Video}

OneMomsWorld 8.2017

Despite some cloud coverage, we were able to experience our first total solar eclipse. I checked out of work early and went straight to sign out M from her first day of school so we could experience this all together. L put together this video of our reactions. We were pretty excited and will hold this memory close to our hearts!

Bringing back the 80s….. {Must watch}

My Madi girl performed in her end of the year clogging recital this past weekend. I’m so incredibly proud of her talents. She received an award for 9 years of clogging.

Have you heard of clogging? Check out one of her dances from the recital.
